UNC's Eric Ebron could be NFL's 'next great tight end'

Based on the buzz circulating in NFL circles, the next great tight end could be UNC's Eric Ebron. The 6-foot-4, 245-pound junior is a long, rangy basketball-like athlete with size, speed and agility to overwhelm defenders on the second level. He is too fast and explosive for most linebackers, but is too big and physical for safeties and nickel corners to hold up in coverage. (NFL.com)
